The Head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko, and acting Head of the LPR, Leonid Pasechnik, have signed a Protocol on the intentions of creating a single customs union. 

In addition, the Protocol also includes an Agreement on cooperation between the state enterprise “Donetsk Railways” and the state enterprise “Lugansk Railways”, according to which these enterprises will work together to link the regions, in terms of ease of transportation of goods and passengers. 

According to Zakharchenko, this was the beginning of a new stage in relations between the two Republics.

“These documents are the start of a new stage in the development of relations between our Republics. Thanks to them, our economic interaction will develop and strengthen. The protocol will allow us to cooperate more closely, which will show our enemies that we are indivisible.” – said Zakharchenko.

“We have nothing to divide. We are one people, one land, one task. The signed Protocol will be useful for our economies, and will not allow for political speculation. And, of course, it will become the guarantor of social stability of our Republics.” Pasechnik stressed.
